Butterfly Beauties

I've been playing with the few Copic markers I have. I want to make sure I will use them often before I buy more. So far, I have enjoyed using them. I used to hate coloring, but these markers really make your images pop. It also helps that I've looked at a few tutorials to get the effects I want. I still have lots to learn, but it's fun.

Here's a card using Copics. I love these butterflies from the Take Flight set by GinaK Designs. The card base is my new favorite CS called Soft Sand by GinaK. It's better than your typical Kraft CS. The patterned paper is by K&Co's Wild Saffron. I found a full 12 x 12 paper pack for $5 (I think retail is $19.95) at a Michael's store just recently. I love it when I find great deals like that!

I followed Patter's Triple the Sketch challenge this week. Make sure you stop by there as they celebrate the first anniversary of my friend Laura's Layers of Color stamp company. There are lots of goodies that they're giving away, including a $50 gift certificate to Layers of Color, which has amazing stamp sets with a vintage feel.
